Need New Neck HELP pls

Hi i have a les paul copy thats quiet cheap and i have performed maintenance on it i.e i changed the pickups and the jack and while adjusting the truss rod it seems to have broken are there any good websites for me to get a new neck form as i have a very annoying fret buzz and tinny sound from my strings and the high e doesnt ring out on the 12th fret and below andy and all help would be appreciated also i have a very small budget. thanks

In most cases like this it's going to be cheaper and easier to replace the whole guitar than to get a new neck.

the answer here is to just have the thing worked on, maybe a set up or something, the tech/luthier will know what to do.

but warmouth necks are easily the most popular custom neck company, i can't wait to get an excuse to get a warmouth

If it's an LP, odds are it's neck through.
Which means a hell of a lot of work to replace the neck.

It would be easier to just buy a new guitar, and probably cheaper than taking it to a luthier.

I imagine you have 1 of those inexpensive LP copies. There are a bunch of eBay sellers which provide LP-style necks here.

Please note that I have zero experience with these parts/sellers. Good Luck!

Measure the scale length, that's very very important and might not be accurate to a Les Paul on a cheap copy.
